The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a game released in 2011 by the Bethesda Softworks studio. This studio, before Skyrim, had already created several outstanding games. The most known games were probably the previous parts of The Elder Scrolls, as the TES series has been started in 1994.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a classic RPG set in a fantastic world known from previous parts of the game - Tamriel. This time, however, the action takes place in the eponymous land of Skyrim, about 200 years after the events known from the previous part of TES IV called Oblivion. The world of Skyrim is consists of beautiful wild landscapes intertwined with small villages and majestic ancient cities.
The plot of the game is very extensive. Skyrim can be played even for a few hundreds hours. The beginning of the game is quite inconspicuous: we wake up on a horse cart going through the forest. It turns out that we are a prisoner sentenced to death whose origin is unknown. When we get under a scaffold, a dragon starts to destroy a town, which interrupts the execution. In the further episodes of the game, we slowly build skills and create the fate of our hero. However, it soon turns out that we are something much more important than we could suppose.
The game allows a lot of freedom in choosing the fate of our hero. The creation of characters is also very advanced. We have 10 different races to choose from, each with its own abilities and skills. We also have lots of options to choose how do we look as our Skyrim alter-ego. However, the class selection is missing here. In the course of the game, we can join different guilds, perform hundreds of various missions and control the fate of the hero, developing the skill tree.
Unlimited opportunities to explore the sandbox world, character development and performing major and side missions have contributed to the huge success of this title around the world. In later years, the game had got three large DLCs, which added an interesting flavor to the main story.
